Default Honda EB 10000 W power plug question

My son in law just bought a brand new Honda EB 10,000 Watt generator. His older unit put out 6000 Watts and he was using a 30 amp twist lock plug. The new unit takes a 50 amp twist lock plug, 120/240 volt. Does anyone have a part number for the correct male plug that he needs? Honda has a receptacle selection page:
https://powerequipment.honda.com/gen...acle-selection

If you select Model EB 10000 it takes you to a PDF page on plug selection.
http://cdn.powerequipment.honda.com/..._Selection.pdf

On that page if you scroll down to Control Panel, a picture on the RHS shows all the output receptacles on that unit.

On plugs No. 2 & 3, they list a NMEA part number for either of those receptacles.

They offer no NMEA number for Plug No. 1

Anyone know what part number the required plug is?

I don't care what manufacturer it is, we just need a number to order a plug that will fit.

We are all set. Did more digging around and finally came up with NEMA CS6365N.

That looks like the correct one

I made up a heavy extension cord for it and installed a female plug on the other end. Then put a double throw switch between my utility meter and the circuit breaker box and installed an inlet plug. THat way I can turn off the utility power and have it completely isolated while allowing my entire house, or at least most of it, to be powered via the generator.

CS6365c should connect to that generator

My son in laws system is brand new. He built a new house and had it done by the electrician that wired his house. But when he did it, he had a smaller generator. His has a outdoor receptacle with a weatherproof cover over it. They made a 20ft rubber cord for him, but it was for 30 amps. Now he has 50, so he has to change everything. Inside the garage, a sub panel with a generator lockout bar feeds the house on one end, and the outside plug on the other. He works long hours so I am trying to help him round up all the parts he will need before he get the electrician back over there.

Make sure you use a power cord that will carry 50 amps . It's been a while since I looked at mine but I think it is 6/4. Generator end plug as well as female end plug for an inlet plug needs to all be rated for 50 amps as well. Everything needs to be balanced for the power load.

Northern tool has these plugs as well as pre-made cordsets.

No they are not cheap. Copper aint cheap, and you're getting into big copper.

That 50 amp cordset by Reliance does not have the correct male plug to plug into one of the large Honda generators, You need a twist lock 50 amp plug

Here is a deal on ebay for male plugs

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Lot-of-5-MA...pe!75766!US!-1

Here is the corresponding female plug I used to plug into an inlet box mounted onto my double throw disconnect.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/CEP-Marinco...8AAOSwIBBUZjLe

and finally the inlet box, the prongs area always cold if properly wired, until the female end of power cord is attached and activated by the generator.

I forgot to mention, I used 6/4 cable to make my cordset. I did get all the various parts and cable except for the male plug which came with my generator. Wiring that heavy wire to the plugs was not an easy job. I did tin the ends with a silver content solder , then flattened slightly for more contact when tightening the terminal screws in plugsets.

Yep, you are correct. I was looking at terminal plugs and not having mine here in the house it was easy to confuse.

I think this is a proper male plug
